One of the shows I most looked forward to last fall was "The Nine," ABC's serial drama about what happened to nine people who were held hostage during a bank robbery. The show premiered to positive reviews, and I was absolutely sucked in by the tension-filled pilot.

Six more episodes are scheduled to air, though I'm not sure if we'll ever get to find out what really happened inside that bank. Most of the cast members have moved on to other projects — Tim Daly to "Private Practice," Chi McBride to "Pushing Daisies," Dana Davis to "Heroes" — so there's really no chance of the show being resurrected.
